And to think we were one check-swing away from the shift to seeing a likely no hitter. Love what I'm seeing from Corbin so far this year! Playing for that big $$ contract.

Hoping Ray can right the ship tomorrow. Aspects of his game have gotten better with each start, but a rough start to the season for him, even though he's won his starts.

The velocity of his fastball appears to be going up with each start. It was hitting just 91-93 MPH on his first start of the season and tonight it's hitting 94-95. Hopefully by midseason we'll see him tossing 95-97 on a regular basis again.

Command of his slider still continues to be a problem but it seems like he can throw his fastball for strikes when needed. Couple walks & a hit batter so far but 8 strikeouts (thru 5 IP)

Patrick Corbin now has 8+ strikeouts in each of his first 5 starts. He's the only one in the majors to start with 8+ Ks in 4 starts or more and he joins Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling as the only #Dbacks with a streak of 5 or more starts with 8+ Ks.

14 straight scoreless innings pitched
